BMW has scooped the top prize in the Company Car Today CCT100 Awards 2020, with the new 3-Series being named as Car of the Year, as well as being one of three cars from the brand to win its sector.
The all-new 1-Series and long-time segment leader 5-Series also scooped awards as the industry’s leading fortnightly fleet title Company Car Today announced its verdict on the best cars in the company car industry.
“For BMW to make such an impressive step forward with a car that was already at the top of the class when it was replaced is hugely impressive, and shows what a great achievement the new 3-Series is,” said Company Car Today Editor Paul Barker. “Combine that with a successful transition to the 1-Series becoming front-wheel drive, and being better for it in all-round company car terms, and the 5-Series continuing to dominate its executive class, and it bodes well for BMW’s corporate success.”
The Vauxhall Insignia and Honda Civic retained their top positions in the core fleet upper medium and lower medium sectors respectively, while Kia won two awards including Electric Car of the Year for the e-Niro. Toyota collected its first ever CCT100 Award, with the recently revised C-HR being named top crossover vehicle.
The Company Car Today CCT100 Awards pick out the best models across the 20 key sectors of the car industry, highlighting the best options for business car operation, considering elements including running costs, efficiency, practicality and all-round appeal.
The awards form part of the CCT100 countdown of the 100 cars that car meet any fleet requirement, which appears in the new issue of Company Car Today, published on 22 January and also available to view online HERE.
“These awards really drill down into the elements that make a good company car, and we’re proud to be awarding these models the status of best in class,” said Company Car Today Publisher Dave Wallace. “Our CCT100 chart guides fleets on the cars that should be on their shortlists, whatever their business requirements.”
